With the world concerned over what ridiculousness would transpire at the Shootout contest in this weekend’s Skills Competition as the absence of Alex Ovechkin was duly noted, a couple folks delivered in style in what was a generally pretty dull and slow contest.
Patrick Kane was a favorite to win some folks over as we’ve all seen his capacity for ludicrous dangling. He didn’t disappoint either with what seemed to be a Dwight Howard inspired Superman move, fully equipped with a set of Clark Kent glasses and cape.
Take a look.
Not to be outdone, Corey Perry, who wowed people with his lacrosse/former London Knight teammate Robbie Schremp inspired puck moves. These weren’t the ones which impressed though as what started as a Slap Shot-esque strip fest ended with Perry pulling out a mini stick and scoring on Brian Elliott.
Well, Backhand Shelfers? Which was better: Kane’s Superman or Perry’s mini stick?
